to meet with house democrats. >> economy is trying to give us signs it wants to launch. the president wants to be there to make sure that the 535 elected members in congress. and the individual american people elected to be president of the united states are ready to launch with the economy. >> also today, treasury secretary jack lew talked about the possibility of finding bipartisan compromise. >> i think there is a growing sense that everyone knows where the balance fair deal is. everyone knows we need to get there. they just don't know how to get there. you have to start. >> today, as far as discussions about reinstating some of the white house tours ts in, in the briefing jay carney says there has been discussions about trying to get specific groups in. no decision on that point and no plans to reverse the overall decision to suspend tours for now. >> bret: shannon bream live on the white house lawn. thank you. the dow's run is now in double digits. the industrial average made it ten straight winning days to gain 84 today. closing at another record high. s&p 500 was up 9. the nasd
this economy. and i thank you once again, my good friend from california, for making all the important points this evening. mr. garamendi: washington, d.c., your leadership in this community has been known for some time and i thank you very much for joining us tonight. i want to do two things before i end. first of all, medicare is back on the table. the ryan budget takes up medicare once again and provides a voucher that will destroy it. i'm going to change this. medicare, 1965, president 2013, created by l.b.j., destroyed by the g.o.p. i don't think so. seniors don't want it. americans don't want it. the last campaign for presidency, this was one of the major issues and ryan is coming back with it. bad idea, bad timing. and i want to end with this, this is a great country. there is no other place in the world like the united states. it is one terrific country. there is enormous energy in this country, where people want to get a job and go to work and businesses want to grow and hire people. all of that is waiting for congress to get its act together, to get this sequestration out of the way
to work productively, for us to roll up our sleeves and get the economy working again, get the millions of people who are struggling to find jobs back to work again. and i am hopeful this conversation today was a positive step in that direction. >> any questions? >> a lot of this conversation has been focused on entitlement reform. i am wondering if you heard anything in there that the president said about a willingness to bring down the cost of entitlements. >> the president has says paul -- has said publicly and reiterated privately he understands that until -- let me put it the way i like to put it. until you make the eligibility for entitlements, you can never solve the problem. until you solve the entitlement concerned, in a way that saves medicare and saves social security and medicaid, because the trusties he appointed are all in trouble, you also cannot save health care, you cannot save the country until you fix this problem. i think the president understands that. his political base is pretty wedded to trying to get additional revenue as a condition of solving the problem. ther
and champion growth. our economy is stagnant and a lot of people are hurting. and that's where my focus remains, every day. >> shannon: you mentioned that republicans and democrats, you question whether or not they have read the constitution recently and if they adhere to it and if they are really familiar with what it is at its core. how do you reconfigure? how does either party get back to that? >> i think we are seeing a rejuvenation in the republican party. visaid for a while. i think -- i have said for a while, i think the best thing that happened to republicans was to get our teeth kicked in by 2008. by 2006, 2008, i think that republicans had stopped standing for principle. we saw a new generation of leaders step forward in 2010 and more continue in 2012, who are really focused on getting back to our core principles, getting back to the constitution and getting back to free market principles. i think far too many republicans had gone along to get along. had agreed with democrats and exploding the size of government -- i mean, that's how we have gotten a $16.5 trillion debt. i think the p
measures also create good quality american jobs that can help grow our economy for the future. it's a win-win that we should all support. that's why last month i reintroduced two bills that would help our local communities implement these cost saving measures. one is the coastal state climate change planning act which would provide for coastal states who wish to carry out adaptation projects in order to prepare for the impacts of climate change. and another bill is the water infrastructure resiliencey and sustainability act, supporting states wishing to update their aging storm, waste and drinking water systems in order to adapt for climate change. these bills would help our local communities to plan and prepare for the impacts of climate change and increased extreme weather. our communities deserve protections from these potentially devastating events, and we have a responsibility to help. mr. speaker, we have a choice. we can continue to spend tens of billions of dollars annually on emergency aid packages that will only grow in size and quantity or we can spend a fraction of that on pla
to the economy? >> i think you cannot get these kind of cuts without -- >> what cuts? i'm talking about freezing -- >> hold on. i know you're a young politician. i like young politicians more than old politicians. but whatever you are, you got to wait. because i let you go. right? let's do that. i think the answer is if you look at taking a big bite out of the jobs in the public sector, and taking away the spending that goes throughout the entire economy, that hurts growth. that's the biggest problem. i think an issue for you is i think it's great to have someone who's 23 out there running. i think that is great in both parties. we have way too many senior citizens making decisions for the rest of us. i'm with that. the question i have for you is, if you're going to go in your district, prince william counties is one of the biggest counties. >> 70,000 federal workers. >> you know where i'm going. that's the debate have. what's the largest employer there? >> 70,000 people. 1 out of every 10 people in my district works for the federal government. >> you're going to run. this is the question. you'r
have in our economy and deficit. center sessions? >> i commend senator enzi. you have to know what the budget does in regard to directing the closing of loopholes and deductions. plan in the budget is to spend that money. that is what the plan is. it actually spends a twice. can you put that statement on the screen? i want to call your attention. the lead democratic witness in this a very hearing room said this, for business tax reform, the lead item should be corporate tax rates in the mid- 20s, pay for that by getting rid of government that is distorting business behavior and what business the business. that was the lead democratic witness here. i asked him to repeat that. he said, but the money that you get from closing deductions and making the tax code simpler should be used to reduce the rates -- he said yes. senator baucus believes that. members of your committee have all talked about the need to simplify and reduce the rates, but it will use the money you get from closing the polls, how can you close -- a lower the rates? this is kind of logic that we need to get through ou
, we like to see that because it means the economy is doing better. of course, we talk how the federal reserve is playing a role in the rallywell. standing behind the economy and keeping the interest rates low and making sure that we can keep this economy bubbling along. so, every day we're watching this and every day it's going higher, harris. >> so you're sitting at home and not a big time investor. watching your retirement funds, is now a good time to put money in stocks. >> the people we're talking to saying he we could have a retrenchment, 2, 5, maybe more on the big board, the dow stocks and that's an opportunity for people to get back in if we have a pullback, that's what i would wait for. if you've got a long time horizon, be in stocks, you want to make sure you're going to fund your retirement with investments that last over a lifetime, not over 20 minutes or two seconds, like the pros sometimes do, harris. >> gerri willis, thank you very much. libyan authorities reportedly holding a person in custody tonight in connection with the terror attack on the u.s. outpost in benghazi
're doing. if we have a growing economy but if the leaders of congress can't come together and deal with the sequester and the possible shutdown and we continue to live in these short- short-term crises, it diminishes our strength around the world. it does. >> michael: that seems to be happening. you told us straightforwardly and exactly what it is democratic strategy kiki mclean, thank you for coming in to "the war room" today. >>> undeterred from the angry stares and slack jawed confusion from the media, elizabeth warren continues to speak truth to power. the latest on her introduction to this unique phenomenon in washington that story next. with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. you're invited to take the lysol wipes challenge. try lysol dual action wipes and see the cleaning power. lysol dual action wipes have 2 sides instead of one. a scrubbing side that cleans tough stains better than clorox. and a smooth side for everyday touchups. all while killing 99.9% of germs. take the lysol w

, corporate profits are up. we're starting to make progress in our economy. wages aren't and unemployment is too high. he wants to have budget that reflects building from the middle out things he said in the campaign. number two, he was asked specifically about chain cpi. what he made clear is he will not chase a bad deal. you heard mr. boehner just now, he seems to be demanding a bad deal. the president making it quite clear he won't chase it i think gave members some confidence it's not as though he's going to give something away like chain cpi. what the president said is any deal he negotiates is going to have to be balanced. that means a significant contribution from revenues, largely from cleaning up the tax code, with a focus on investing. you know, the sequester is putting us two years off on doing a scientific research for health care. so the president was reassuring to us that he's focused on the middle class. he's focused on jobs and not interested in getting into a negotiation where we bid against ourselves, something we've done too much of in the past. >> congressman, members
sanctions ever. it's having a significant effect. >> on the economy? >> there is the president of the united states saying it could take a year for iran to develop a nuclear weapon. let's discuss what is going on. that's the first time i heard the president give such a specific timeline, within a year or so iran could have a nuclear weapon. that sounds pretty ominous. >> it does sound ominous. what it shows you is what a difficult diplomatic challenge the president has. because they're negotiating with iran through the six-party talks which are taking place in kazakhstan and there the united states has made some offers that are, you know, trying to help iran move to a kind of win-win place. now he is managing the other dimension of this which is israel. he is trying to convince the israelis that he is serious, that he sees that there is not an infinite amount of time, and he said later in the interview all options are on the table. when i say all options i mean military force and we have substantial capabilities. so he's trying to manage the iranian clock as well as the israeli clock. >> so
, in science and research, in education. things that are important to power the economy. our focus has been on jobs first. let's get the economy in full gear. not put the brakes on it. which is what the republicans do. they've gotten austerity budget that according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office, will result in 750,000 fewer jobs bn i end of the year. so we say let's tackle the deficit in a smart way, get people back to work and reduce it over a steady period over a period of time and our comes to balance at the same time that the republicans' budget from last year comes into balance. >> on the issue of revenue, i believe your budget has about $200 billion more in revenue than senator murray's budget in the senate. why did you put that in there considering that republicans are so adverse to any new revenue? >> the budget we have in our democratic proposal. if you take it even together with the revenue from the fiscal cliff agreement, is still less total revenue, luke, than was embedded in the bipartisan simpson-bowles agreement. so we have less revenue proposed by that bipar

to see right now. we have a $14 trillion economy with $13 trillion of demand. the government is not making up the difference. if the government stops, will the economy collapse? maybe republicans will be happy because there will be a reserved army of 25 million unemployed people and as for the middle class, that's going to be over. >> we're not talking about jobs that are not necessary. i mean, when i come down your way, as i offered to come down to atlanta, we need insfra structure redevelopment. we're talking about bridges, tunnels, infrastructure that needs repair, needs to be dealt with, jobs that are needed. we're not just talking about charity here. >> indeed. >> look, i have five children -- >> this is not like the works public administration where some of the jobs that were created during the great depression weren't immediately necessary. i love some of those artworks but you can argue that those weren't necessary. but infrastructure spending is absolutely necessary. we are running so far behind. some of our biggest international competitors, like the chinese. >> rig
, our economy and our way of life. but of course, the climate deaners and the polluters don't want that. the deaners want to prevent discussion -- the deniers want to prevent discussion of climate change altogether. in the past few years in this body, climate science has become a taboo topic. i watched when my back was out in the last few days one of the harry potter movies on the television, and lord valdemort was called he who shall not be named in those harry potter stories. well, carbon pollution is the pollution which shall not be named. climate change, the harm that is caused by that pollution is the harm that shall not be named. the obstructionists want to squelch any discussion of the pollution which shall not be named. so as to let big polluters continue dumping carbon and other greenhouse gas into our oceans and atmosphere. take, for instance, the house select committee on energy independence and global warming created in 2007 as a forum for confronting the economic and security challenges of our dependence on foreign fuels. when republicans took controlf the house of reprenta

"the washington post" saying tough things about the democratic budget but let's commend. i'm commending democrats today and i -- let's commend the democrats for putting out a budget. because this is where we start the conversation and the conversation starts with two budgets that are both dead on arrival. but it's at least a starting point. >> i do think this return to regular order which speaker boehner has talked a lot about makes sense here. we have now seen, what, the last couple of years where republican leaders are really -- john boehner and negotiating directly with president obama is not working so why not let congress do its job and come up with competing visions of america's fiscal future and let them try to hash that out without the white house always bein
. the longest winning streak since 1992. a lot of this is due to signs of an improving economy. yesterday we got a report showing weekly jobless claims fell, and this isn't just the dow. the s&p 500, a much broader index with 500 different stocks instead of 30 in the dow is within two points of its record high. and of course, the fed keeps pumping money into the economy every single month. $85 billion worth of money so there are all of these things lined up to push the dow higher. because of the rally there are a lot more millionaires in this country right now. spectrum group says nearly 400,000 new millionaires were mentioned last year. tally them up and there are 8.9 households with net worth over $1 million. so what's the secret? how did they get there? well, spectrum says these are people who buy stocks, they stayed in the market during the recession when less wealthy investors, people quite frankly in financial turmoil, had to bail out. and remember, warren buffett always says be greedy when ears are fearful and fearful when others are greedy. clearly 400,000 new millionaires minted in the
